Broadening Your Resume When Job Experience is Scarce

Many law students spend their entire college careers focusing on their studies and overall academic performances, which leaves them no time to hold down full-time jobs. Although this sacrifice pays off when students end up with records of high scholastic achievement upon graduation, full-time law students can find it difficult to put together resumes demonstrating strong, relevant experience and skills. However, we can help you find solutions to that problem. Too often, students overlook some of their greatest qualifications and skills simply because they were not derived from paid, full-time jobs.
Broadening Your Resume When Job Experience is Scarce

Involvement in school-wide organizations, societies, and/or clubs can help you develop many stellar attributes that employers will fall in love with. If you have served in any leadership positions within organizations, societies, and/or clubs, you have likely gained experience with team-building, organization, coordination, collaboration, follow-through, and responsibility—all skills and qualities you can mention on your resume. You can also incorporate any experience with creating, planning, and carrying out school-wide activities or fundraisers. If you are still in school, sharing your talents and dedication with your peers and faculty will help you to build valuable personal and professional relationships that will last you for years to come. And, based on these relationships, you will be able to develop a list of references that will come in handy.

Volunteer work also provides opportunities for exercising your abilities to take initiative, improve the community, and serve others. During your free time or on weekends, try tutoring young children, organizing and conducting food drives, visiting and entertaining at nursing homes, and reading to children in hospitals. These kinds of work will help you to develop strong skills as a humanitarian and an individual. Simply put, people want to work with those who are nice, friendly, and understanding. If you have a crummy personality and no mercy for others, you will never make it in most professions.
